Bocas Town:  

Colorful and Caribbean!

If you are looking for a life of slow pace and pure rustic magic this town will hypnotize you into canceling all future plans.

The main street of Bocas town is  not located on any beaches, but you can easily rent a bike or take a taxi ride outside of town. Just 9 degrees above the equator this little paradise will captivate you with it’s caribbean vibe of little shops and restaurants built on stilts over the water.  Most travelers learn after spending a day or two in Bocas it’s nice to be back on the beach for rest and relaxation.  You will find yourself idly wandering the streets, the allure of Bocas is simply slowing down and soaking up the Caribbean vibes.
